In 1918 Hitler mostly was in France. After a period in the area of the Chemin des Dames he and his regiment went to the north, near the Belgian border, where they had been before. There, in Wervicq-Sud, he got woonded. He was transported to Pasewalk in Germany, where his blindness caused by a gas attack was treated. When he received the news of Germany’s capitulation he must have had another  form of blindness, this time being a blindness of hysterical nature. His period in Pasewalk led to many speculations. After Hitler became the Führer of Germany the doctor that treated him in Pasewalk commited suïcide.
